Era Lecsó

Lecso is a traditional Hungarian dish. It can be prepared in many ways depends which part of Hungary you are. My lecso is not similar to any of it as I vary the doze of ingredients to my taste. Here it is Era’s paleo way, feel free to change and make it your own! The ingredients I use are for 2 big plates.

I love meat therefore I use chopped smoked bacon (from Lidl) and Pick Spicy Paprika Sausage (from Tesco deli counter, which by the way not hot-spicy at all). I put them in a pan with some ghee and cook it for 5 minutes before I throw (3 big) chopped onions on the top. When the onion is soft I add the chopped paprika. I usually use 2 bigger paprika per person and slice them into small pieces so it becomes softer-faster. Put the kettle to boil as much water as you can and cut a shallow X around your tomato from top to top, put them in a bowl and pour the hot water on it. After a minute or two, you can carefully remove the skin of the tomato easily. Now chop it up and add it to the lecso. It will became very juicy but after another 5 minutes you can add 2 eggs to the whole stew to dense. And voila, the lecso is ready.

Continuing the hard work

After yesterday’s touristy day in central London I went Today for another morning run to prepare myself for the half marathon. The weather is so beautiful here in London therefore I wanted to take full advantage of it. Erika challenged me with 5k and I had 48h to complete my run. This way we can motivate each other and other runners.
The beauty of running outside is that I always find some new beautiful places and random spots.
After completing 5k I stretched properly to avoid the lactose acid to get into my muscles (this is what makes your muscles sore after the run). So…. Remember that stretching is the most important part. Then I spent some more time relaxing by the river watching duckies 🙂

first WeRunForMatthias team training

You can see who is always at the front and who is at the back 🙂 Pacing is not easy when you are out and about. I was lucky Vee had the right rhythm so all I had to do is to Keep Calm and Carry On!

Find your rhythm and running buddy. This way you can motivate each other and if one or another looses the pace then you know there’s someone who will motivate you to complete the run.

 

Don’t stop your journey toward your goals

Yellow mellow everyone,

So the long bank holiday weekend is over and I am back to work. Over the weekend I went for a quick spa break to get away from the city for a little bit.

It was lovely and relaxing…. But remember; don’t forget it is still important to workout even on your holiday. I still managed to go to gym and get one small step closer to my goals of successfully running the half marathon and most importantly to help to raise money for Mathias.

Check out my route on Nike+

SmallColnbrookCircle

This is the small Colnbrook Circle I usually run, when I start my training preparation. I find this distance just perfect to start with. The path contains different types of terrain. Starting in Colnbrook the first and last km is on pavement. You can choose to run the second km in the forest or around it on pavement. Please note that after rainy days the forest can turn into muddy jungle, I would not risk to slip and injure myself.The next km is on the road between Poyle and Horton. It leads to a public footpath trail before arriving back to Colnbrook.

If you take it easy, it will take you about half an hour in a nice jog. I recommend harder running shoes because of the diversity of the terrain.

For all of you out there who just started exercising recently and getting discouraged by being sick or for some other reason. Get your trainers and kick back in as soon as you feel better.
